Former FBI Director James Comey played a leading role in one of the biggest scandals in American history.
On his watch, the FBI engaged in a politically motivated espionage campaign to destroy Donald Trump.
But President Trump struck back and shut down the former FBI Director with nine words.
The Coverup Begins
The FBI and Department of Justice are fighting efforts to uncover the extent of the FBI’s corruption.
Both agencies are resisting efforts by Congress and outside watchdog groups to turn over documents.
Officials at the FBI and Department of Justice are terrified of what will happen when Americans learn the truth.
President Trump is fed up.
But Trump is in a difficult position.
The President has the power to declassify documents and order their release, however, should he take that action, his critics will accuse him of interfering in an investigation.
So the President has chosen to remain on the sidelines while making his wishes known via public statements.
Some Trump supporters are frustrated by this strategy.
Others trust his instincts and realize the President doesn’t want to hand his critics any more ammunition.
The President Speaks Out
Trump once again put the FBI and Comey on blast for their conduct during the election and ensuring a cover-up.
President Trump asked, “Will the FBI ever recover it’s once stellar reputation?”
The President also wondered why they won’t turn over text messages belonging to former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
President Trump tweeted:
Why isn’t the FBI giving Andrew McCabe text messages to Judicial Watch or appropriate governmental authorities. FBI said they won’t give up even one (I may have to get involved, DO NOT DESTROY). What are they hiding? McCabe wife took big campaign dollars from Hillary people…..
…..Will the FBI ever recover it’s once stellar reputation, so badly damaged by Comey, McCabe, Peter S and his lover, the lovely Lisa Page, and other top officials now dismissed or fired? So many of the great men and women of the FBI have been hurt by these clowns and losers!
A Dark Secret Behind the Cover Up
Critics accuse the FBI of trying to run out the clock.
They believe the FBI is slow-walking document requests from Congress in hopes Democrats win back power in November.
Once the Democrats wield subpoena power, all the investigations into the FBI’s wrongdoing would vanish.
Outside groups could still submit Freedom of Information Act requests, but the FBI handles those at a glacial pace and sometimes takes months or years to comply.
President Trump is aware of those outcomes.
Trump supporters believe that is why he mentioned getting involved in his tweets.
The Democrats controlling Congress could very well change the dynamics of the investigations.
A Democrat committee would take a hands-off approach with the FBI, so the only recourse would be that the President would have to get involved.
